Saturday Steps with Wilson and Jimmy


Wilson and Jimmy are joining
 me and Tess on this weeks
 Saturday Steps


 We have something in common,
 Me and Tess are Welsh Terrier's
Wilson and Jimmy are Cardigan Welsh Corgi's, they are herding dogs



Over to Taryn to tell you some more

Wilson, brindle and white, is almost 9.
Jimmy, black and white, is almost 5.


We live just outside Washington, DC. (You would think I could get some good Steps there, but never seem to take the boys downtown! Someday....)

Both boys are trained in dog agility and both have dabbled a teeny-tiny bit in herding sheep. Their favorite activity is probably swimming. It would be the sheep herding but it is way too expensive and a long drive!

As always, love hearing from George and Tess on their blog, and especially seeing your beautiful English countryside!

A totally un-dog related comment...I've only been to England once, for a week, back in the 90's, in early June. Our visit coincided with the Queen's birthday celebration, just as a fluke, we didn't plan it. So we of course watched the parade. The Queen passed right in front of us in her horse-drawn carriage, just a few feet away.....Now, consider that I've lived just outside Washington, DC for almost 30 years and have never seen any of our Presidents up close! I guess I got really lucky on that trip to London. 

 



Thanks Taryn

Mom's not seen any Royals, so you did get lucky.


  Wilson and Jimmy you always pose so well together,
any tips that I can pass onto Tess!!

Hey Bro' and Tess - great post with Wilson and Jimmy. I like their names.

Yes - I've forgiven mum, but really - she can step over the "personal space" line sometimes. The bunny ears were not too bad - you should have seen the treats I scored - and then dad rescued me and we went for a long walk. Mum could not believe how long I kept them on for - but they didn't pinch into my head so I was relieved about that!

Anywho - Happy Easter to you two and your Peeps!

Tail Wuggles, Your sis, Rubie

Taryn said...

Thanks so much for posting my boys! It's great for them to get a moment close to their native Wales! Maybe someday I'll actually take a trip to Cardiganshire.....

I like your guests George, shame it's too far to journey to herd the sheep though.
Thank you for your visit and (cheeky) comment George! Sorry no pet recipes, and there's not a lot of chocolate at our house :o( but I'll see what I can do before Sunday!
See you then, lots of love
Auntie Rose xx xx

GOOD MORNING YOU TWO, THREE, FOUR wonderful correspondents and reporters! Tessy dearest, do you need a little lesson on how to stay still? How is your leggy my dear? And the swimming classes? Dear George, old man, you look the distinguished one, looking after little sister! Are you both going on an Easter BUNNY HUNT?????? Be kind! Give the bunny a good run for his money, but no biting!

LOVE TO ALL OF YOU MY FRIENDS!

I like the names Wilson and Jimmy. Handsome dogs.

Elsie got mistaken for a Lakeland Terrier this morning. You would think her accent would have given it away!

Have a great Easter. xx
